Didn't TT turn down the Defiant Ones since the materials needed too much work?

Okay, guess it's safe to say King of Hearts was one of the long MIA MGM licenses, since it will no longer be coming from Criterion, as according to Variety it's now with Cohen

I wonder if Marat/Sade is coming, too. The MGM disc has been OOP for years now, and they've already worked with Peter Brook.

I think I remember that Mister Lime confirmed that it's definitely coming from Criterion as both Kino and Twilight Time passed on it.

I wish Criterion (or somebody else) would rescue Bryan Forbes' THE WHISPERERS from M.O.D. purgatory. Fantastic John Barry score, a great, Oscar-nominated performance from Edith Evans, I can't understand why this movie is not more well-known and liked.

I'd love to see a couple of Forbes' other early films released as well, namely the still-never-released-on-DVD-or-Blu "Whistle Down the Wind" and "The L-Shaped Room." Sony currently owns the latter; I'm not sure who owns the former. :-k

Janus actually owns the U.S. rights to both Whistle Down the Wind and Séance on a Wet Afternoon. Both have been part of their catalog since the 60s. They released Séance on DVD via Home Vision, but have never, to my knowledge, issued Whistle on any home media format.

Yeah, I got the "Séance" DVD not long before it went OOP. These smaller, lesser-known British films always seem to end up falling through the cracks here in the States. :-k
